about

This is Squirt's Entry to the Deep Sea Dive Bar's Talent Competition. Here she comes out of her shell. In Act I she was overlooked, treated as a tomboy sidekick. Now she's got Rod's and everybody's attention.

lyrics

ESTHER IN A SOU-WESTER

Squirt: Esther in a Sou-wester
‘cause it’s getting wet
All the boys want to pester
they get caught in her fishnets

She’s like a habit that you can’t break
You’ve got to have it, for Heaven’s sake
She’s the ocean, you’re used to a lake
She’s gonna rock your boat apart
and break your little heart.

Esther in a Sou-Wester
the wind’s gonna blow
Try as you might, you won’t impress her
‘cause every night she’s the star of the show

You’d better bring a life-preserver
poor little thing, you don’t deserve her
just let her in and you live to serve her
She’ll rock your boat apart
and break your little heart.

Esther in a Sou-wester
just wearing a smile
She’ll do what you suggest her
She’ll make it worth your while.

When she slips out of her slicker
it’s going to hit you like a shot of liquor
You’ll fall for her hook, line and sinker
She’ll rock your boat apart
and break your little heart.

Esther comes to those who wait
You know you won’t be her first mate
but if you just take the bait
you might get to come on board
if she lets you.

Esther in a Sou’Wester
‘cause it’s getting wet
all the buoys try to pester
they get caught
in her fishnets.
